News: Las Vegas Design Center Welcomes The Veneman Collections

Showroom known for high-end outdoor furnishings to open June 2011


LAS VEGAS -- May 10, 2011 -- The Veneman Collections is opening a year-round showroom inside Las Vegas Design Center at World Market Center Las Vegas this June.


The high-end California-based brand is known for its fashion-forward design aesthetic in both residential and hospitality outdoor furniture. Veneman’s new showroom in Building A of the Design Center will span more than 1,800 square feet.


The Veneman Collections' high-end furnishings can be seen in locations such as Auberge du Soleil in the heart of Napa Valley, Las Vegas’ Red Rock Resort & Casino, Encore Las Vegas and Manhattan’s Tavern on the Green in Central Park.


The Veneman Collections is well known for its Outdoor Elegance Collection by Roger Thomas, executive vice president of Wynn design and development who has created the interiors and exteriors of Wynn Las Vegas, Bellagio, Treasure Island and most recently led the interior design of Wynn Macau and the interior and exterior design of Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.


Veneman also licenses Walt Disney Signature, a lifestyle brand inspired by Walt Disney, a man who preferred not to participate in the whirl of the Hollywood lifestyle but instead took great pleasure in inviting members of the animation staff and their families to his home on weekends for pool parties in his backyard. This collection aims to recreate those pleasure-filled afternoons through a spirited atmosphere and comfortable surroundings.


“Outdoor spaces play a crucial role in home and hospitality design in this part of the world and we are thrilled to have Bill Markowitz and his team as a part of Las Vegas Design Center.  Veneman is one of the industry’s most sought after names and their connection with Las Vegas’ own Roger Thomas makes this partnership all the more special,” said Randy Wells, vice president of Las Vegas Design Center.


The Veneman Collections also features its outdoor products in showrooms in High Point, N.C., Chicago and Los Angeles.


The new showroom will be located in space A-114. To learn more about The Veneman Collections visit
